Interested in Microchipping your new puppy? This is the best way to help your new baby return home to you, should he/she ever become lost or stolen. Did you know that 1 in 3 pets get lost at some point in his/her life and only 14% of dogs and 4% of cats who end up in animal shelters are returned to their owners? Don't let this happen to your beloved family member!!
Your puppy will receive an AKC Reunite microchip. The chip will come with a pre-paid brochure that you will need to fill out and send to them. You may also register your puppy's chip online on their website.
The web address will be on the brochure as well. You may register your puppy's chip or update your info at anytime online for no additional fee, by clicking HERE.
Microchips are required, within 10 days of adoption, for the health guarantee to take effect.
Microchips are used by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for the study of such animals as grizzly bears, black-footed ferrets and giant land tortoises.
These endangered animals carry safe, permanent I.D. chips. They can be observed and protected while their habits are studied in a humane way.
Over 132,000 animals have been aided in finding their owners because they were microchipped!
8-12 million pets are stolen annually.
30-60% of these are euthanized annually according to the Humane Society.
Collars fall off. Microchips are forever.
They are painlessly inserted in the back of the neck under the skin
and never have to be replaced. They are the size of rice.
They are accepted by the American Kennel Club, Canadian Kennel Club ,
United Kennel Club, American Canine Association, American Pet Registry,
and the USDA as means of identification.
AKC manages the data base. As does the ACA.
ALL POUNDS SCAN DOGS ON ARRIVAL.
ALL LABORATORIES ARE MANDATED BY LAW TO SCAN DOGS BOUGHT FOR "RESEARCH".
If your dog has a microchip, no one can ever deny the lost or stolen dog is YOURS!
Many a dog is stolen to make a quick buck at a laboratory.
These professional dog stealers are called "BUNCHERS". They obtain dogs from "free pet" ads or just simply steal them.
We will only guarantee our pups if microchipped for POSITIVE identification.
The price is $55.00, which includes the registration with the AKC Reunite, NO ADDITIONAL FEES EVER, unless you later choose to re-home your dog, then there is a one-time fee to transfer the registration to a new owner.
If you prefer, this may be done at a vet's office, their prices will likely very from one vet to another. You may check with them for their prices before purchasing your puppy.
But please bare in mind that microchips are now required , within 10 days of adoption, for your new puppy's health guarantee to take effect.
